Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The English mss., 1880, are photostats of political letters from Winfield Scott Hancock, 1824-1886, soldier, to William Hayden English, 1822-1896, banker and congressman, made from the originals in the Indiana Historical Society Library, Indianapolis, Indiana. They cover the period from July 3 to October 29, 1880, and deal with the importance of Democrats carrying Indiana in the oncoming election. Suggestions are also made on obtaining election speakers for the campaign in Indiana.
